  1. I am so sad to hear of Jeannie’s passing. I worked at Meriden Day Care and enjoyed her cooking…a job I took over after she left…and her platters of Christmas cookies she gave us. She was a GREAT woman and will be missed by ALL.

  2. I am so sorry to hear of Jean’s passing. My condolences to Aunt Barbara, Jennifer, Rich and Christopher. All my love.

  3. My condolences to all of you who knew and loved Jean. I met her when we lived in the same apartment building. Our cat spent more time in her apartment than it did in ours but she didn’t mind the visits. My family was so lucky to receive her wonderful cookies at Christmas time. She was a wonderful friend to all of us.

  4. To the family of Jean Michaels, I had the privelege of getting to know Jeanie when I worked in the building where the Meriden Day Care was. She was one of the nicest people I have ever met. She always shared so much of herself and of course her wonderful cooking. She always talked so lovingly about her family.I feel so privileged to have known her. My sincerest condolences to all of you. Sincerely, Laura Hill
